No title, just tears.

I have another post, all happy and ready...but I received some sad news today. Many of you remember I went to visit my elderly aunt in October in Michigan. I knew she had slowed down quite a bit since my uncle's passing last January...and I was not surprised, but she fell again and broke her other hip, quite badly. She is 82 and not in good health and honestly, this is quite serious. Because of my health change, I cannot go there. Her name is Barbara if you feel like praying for her.
As soon as I finished with several calls for her, my young friend with the new cancer diagnosis called. She has started chemo and is quite miserable. Poor thing wanted to commiserate, but I don't think I was much help today. Her name is Katie. She is suffering from nausea.
Thankfully, I did have a wonderful time of worship and refreshment earlier at church before all this happened.
The older I get, the easier the tears fall. Thank you for caring. Hopefully, I will get to do my happy post tomorrow before I leave for CA!

Oh Ceekay...I'm sorry sweetie. What a loving tender heart you are.
I will certainly pray. It's good that you were able to visit in October. She knows you would be there if you could.

Climb up onto God's lap and let Him comfort you with His big holy hugs. I thank Him all the time that He is where I cannot be.

(((HUGS))) and prayers,

It's okay to cry, Ceekay. Tears help release emotion in a good way. I'm praying for Aunt Barbara and for Katie -- and for you! I'm so happy you have the Disney trip, you need to have an escape now! Go and have fun, we'll do your praying for you!


Kathy said...

You already know I'm praying for all these needs. God already knows all about it and He's in charge of the master plan. Be HAPPY! Enjoy your birthday and trip!

I hope your aunt gets well real soon. I would love to go back to Disney World again. We where there when my oldest daugher was 16.That was 23 years ago. I will turn 57 in may and I still love to see Mickey and Snow white. Have a fun time.
